Summary: So I get this unit through my work points system (basically free). And boy am I glad that I didn't pay $600 for this unit. I would have been very upset. So having the same issues as others: 1. Volume does not go low enough 2. No display of volume level 3.
Summary: I purchased this item and found that it was exactly as promised except for one issue that caused me to return the unit. It did have a descent sound and the sub is very good. However, the big problem with this unit is the inability to turn the volume down very low.
Summary: The sound is just awesome and the system is easy to set up. But as other users have pointed out, the wireless subwoofer interferes with at least 2.4 GH based Wi-Fi networks. The sound is interrupted with using internet on the Wi-Fi; and the Wi-Fi becomes erratic.
Summary: First, the sound from this system is great. I cannot deny that. But my new TV (a Panasonic) will not allow me to turn off the TV's volume unless I am using a compatible (i.e., a Panasonic) sound system. That stinks, but we have found ways to work around that. Annoying, but workable.
Great Sound, but Riddled with Glitches and Oversights

Summary: I was in the market for a soundbar for the game room in the new home I'm purchasing. After researching all the reviews, I decided to go with the SB 16. First things first: The sound is amazing. The faux surround really is impressive and the shape of the room doesn't matter.
